In the months leading up to the 2018 LCS season, TSM acquired the "Best in the West" bottom lane from Europe: Zven and Alfonso "mithy" Aguirre Rodríguez. It was a hyped roster move for the year that fell flat, as TSM wouldn't even make an LCS final that year. Mithy would leave and return to Europe the next year.
TSM bounced back with Zven back the following spring split and made it all the way to the finals, where they'd get reversed swept by Team Liquid with one of the highlights of the series being a glaring misplay by Zven, costing them a Baron and the title. TSM again failed to make the League of Legends World Championship in 2019.
Zven wouldn't be able to achieve the same success in North America as he had in Europe in years past, but he will apparently again get his chance in the 2020 season with Cloud 9.
